. this is "the five." ♪ >> dana: our friend senate majority leader harry reid is taking well-deserved heat after tying the tragic accident that killed marines in his home state to the sequester. >> it's important we continue training our military. one thing in sequester we cut back in training and maintenance. it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that the military can't train and do the things that are necessary. the men and women of marine were trained. with the sequester it will cut this stuff back. >> dana: today, names and pictures of three of the seven marines killed were released. josh martino. roger bushnick and josh taylor. the names of the other will be released tonight after military does what it needs to do to inform the families. andrea, i want to go to you first. imagine being reid's spokesperson so say the sound bite did not happen. to say he was trying to tie the tragic don't the sequeste sequester. >> andrea: he said crazy things in the past. he said there wasn't a jobs bill then men would stay at hope and drink beer and beat their wives. it wonder if based on his comments a
's right. not dead. judging by my twitter feed, many of you are very angry at harry reid tonight for killing the assault weapons ban in the package of legislation that was voted out of the judiciary committee. the judiciary committee's legislation on gun safety includes universal background checks, among other things. an assault weapons ban was also in there. the vote in the committee on the assault weapons ban was straight party line, ten democrats in favor, eight republicans opposed. but unfortunately, the judiciary committee does not reflect the politics of the senate as a whole. the judiciary committee, like some other committees, is a bit more liberal than the full senate. those committees can sometimes pass bills that cannot pass the senate. it is not unusual for the majority leader of the senate, whether he's a republican or a democrat, to slightly rewrite committee past bills before introducing them to the full senate. the majority leaders' rewrites and edits have one guiding principle in mind, attracting the votes needed for passage. committee chairmen have to do exactly
and with the sequester it's going to cut this stuff back. >> bill: senator harry reid blaming budget cuts for the death of seven marines in nevada. but the marine corps is furious about that. >> marine corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what harry reid implied. >> bill: we'll have the inside story. >> you have got to ease up. take it easy. >> bill: dennis miller takes a look at the barack obama satan controversy as stephan seagull meeting putin in moscow. >> i want to take you to the bank, to the blood bank. >> caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. america today and the iraq war. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. it was 10 years ago that president bush launched an attack on iraq. >> operation iraqi freedom has begun and the pentagon says saddam hussein's days are numbered. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report on fox news channel and tonight on fox stations from coast to coast. bombs and crews mistles rained down on baghdad for a second night
reform. president obama's initiative to reduce violence in america has been severely weakened. harry reid has announced the most controversial and ambitious part of the president's proposal a ban on assault weapons will not make the final cut when he brings the bill up for debate. >> but, right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues i talked about and what i'm going to try to do. i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assau
's gun bill with connecticut senator richard bloomen that will. we'll ask by harry reid had to drop the assault weapons ban from the measure. >>> in vatican city today, pope francis went to castel gandolfo to meet with his predecessor. during this meeting they prayed together, they had a private 45-minute conversation followed by lunch, but this could be the first and only time in history at current and former pope meet after a transfer of leadership. lots of prayers across this country today with different stakes and millions of players. $320 million is on the line. it is the jackpot in the latest powerball drawing. it's a near record and on wednesday an extra $60 million was added to the jockp jackpot. nobody won. so your odds of winning 1 in 175 million. you better pray harder. that's all i'm saying there. >>> take a quick look at the top left-hand corner of your screen. that's a meteor flying over the skies of maryland traveling at a speed of 10 miles a second. it was larger than the size of most meteors which is why a security camera was able to capture in and why people in 12
harry reid, it's about the math. >> right now, her amendment, has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. >> yet looking at the latest polling, this is something the majority of americans really he cannot even get democrats as the new yorker put it. this wasn't a close call. it was a body blow. standard feinstein vows to keep fighting. >> this is very important to me. i will not lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said and every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. it's aimed to protect children, to protect schools and malls, not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust. >> that last point, the reed-mack told feinstein that it could be offered as an amendment at a later time. we were given some rare good news from a state with a significant history with a gun violence. the governor of colorado signed into law some of the toughest gun safety measures in the country. >> the loss expand background checks to include purchases and transfers between private parties and on-line sales. it closes a loophole that had exempted fire
but a majority of the u.s. senate does not. harry reid taking the ban out of the senate gun control bill. still, joe the plumber is raffling off his ar 15. why are you raffling off the gun? >> i want to encourage americans to stand firm in the face of political correctness because that is the battle coming all about control and kind of like the previous guests about the nanny state. it is not to infringe upon our right because some strange lunatic decided to kill people. you don't sit there and take the rights from americans. and these guys barack obama has taken a page from rahm emanuel's book to take advantage of a crisis to try to disarm citizens. i have been a gun owner my life. i take the kids out hunting and we practice. my family feels secure. and as far as the ban on a 30 round clip. there is not enough rounds out there to protect my family and for him to sit there and say something like that just it makes me angry. how much is too much to protect my family? up that weapon. hold up the weapon you have there in your house. hold it up. no you what do you use that for? >> an ar 15 colt wit
that gives funding for school security. do you think harry reid made a good move? >> well, it's disappointing. but he's done the calculus and knows that an assault weapon bill will not pass the senate. sadly, i think he also knows that even in the democratically controlled senate, a background check for criminals, a universal background check for all of gun sales, including for criminals will not pass the senate. and it was certainly not going to pass the house. so that's what we're up against. and just so everyone is clear about this, you know, i'm a law-abiding gun owner. i own firearms, i go to a gun store where they run a background check. but it's perfectly legal in 33 states to buy guns from private dealers without a background check. so law-abiding gun owners go to gun stores, criminals go to private gun dealers legally and buy 1,000 weapons a day. it's amazing to me that our members of congress cannot find their backbone enough to require a criminal background check for criminals. >> well, senator feinstein and obviously the assault weapons ban was really what she was pushing hardest.
in more than a decade. majority leader harry reid has now confirmed the bill will be debated when lawmakers return from vacation next month. it will call for universal background checks on gun buyers. >>> an emotional scene in a new york courtroom. a man who spent 23 years in prison for a murder he did not commit has finally been freed. david ranta convicted in 1990 of killing a local rabbi but a recent review found that police had mishandled evidence as well as coached those witnesses. >>> and we want you to look at this. more than 100 people injured in a massive highway pileup. the crash set in motion during a blizzard in western canada. tractor trailers, a bus, even a truck carrying cattle all tangled up but amazingly, no one was killed. >>> and a major medical headline that will get you to put down that salt shaker. researchers now blame one in every ten deaths in the u.s. on salt. much of it in those processed foods such as bread and cheese remain the top sources in our diet. >>> and talk about march madness. it truly was madness when the 14 ranked harvard crimson stunned num
leader harry reid says the provision was dropped because he feared republican opposition would block passage of any bill at all. >>> convicted teen killer t.j. lane will spend the rest of his life behind bars without parole. the 18-year-old was sentenced on tuesday to three life sentences for the shooting deaths of three students at an ohio school cafeteria. lane wore a t-shirt with the word "killer" written on it, cursed the courtroom and gestured obscenely. >>> let's head to wall street, cnbc's jackie deangelis has the latest. good morning, jackie. >> good morning, natalie. investors closely watching the situation in cyprus after lawmakers there rejected a controversial bailout proposal that would have taxed regular savings accounts. the concern is that the debt crisis in the eurozone is back on the table and that could weigh on stocks. later today the nation's top money man, fed chairman ben bernanke, he will answer questions on the economy but what investors really want to know if he's going to continue with economic stimulus. natalie? >> jackie deangelis at the new york stock ex
leader, harry reid, who's from nevada, addressed the accident moments ago from the senate floor. >> we don't know exactly what happened. it was a violent explosion. we know that. my thoughts are with those who are injured and of course the families of those who lost loved ones. details are emerging. we really don't know. the area's been blocked off. i understand it was quite a big explosion. >>> this morning, before a crowd of at least 150,000 people, pope francis was officially inaugurate ed as the 266th bish of rome. 130 world leaders, including vice president joe biden, attended this morning's mass. 500 priests were called in to deliver communion. >>> tomorrow is the first day of spring, but snow is falling in the northeast, prompting school closures from massachusetts to maine and check out this incredible ireport video from pearl, mississippi. n, those aren't golf balls. golf ball-sized hail covered the ground yesterday, denting this guy's car and shattering more than one windshield. >>> a 6-month-old baby in chicago killed by gunfire last week was shot once, not several times, as
don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. harry reid looked weak yesterday when he stood in front of the camera and almost conceded, we don't have the votes. go out and get them. if that's what you feel for and feel strongly about it, make it happen. i'm shoorry. you can fault the republicans for their views but the republicans will fight until the end for something they believe in. >> tiffany, i'll let you get in. we're going to have to move on to a different subject. i want to talk about an online question from jada pinkett smith, the actress, married to will smith. the actress said she's not pointing fingers, but she's pushing buttons when she talks about white women on the covers of black magazines. pinkett smith posted this question on facebook, here it is. she said if we ask our white sisters who tend to be the guardians of the covers of mainstream magazines to consider women of color to grace these magazines, should we not offer the same consideration to white women to grace our covers? should women extend their powers to other women simply because they are women?
to be in legislative trouble. senate majority leader harry reid has frankly admitted he doesn't have the votes for a assault weapons ban and support for other legislation also appears shaky. >> it only has been three months since the newtown massacre. i mean, there was so much political support and really a rallying cry after that for stricter gun control measures. why does the political support seem so shaky right now, i guess is the question. >> well, there's two reasons. one is that time has passed. the polls have eroded somewhat. they're still generally in favor of the gun control people, depending on the poll, but not as strongly in favor. also the purpose of purple states. the simple truth is there are lawmakers who come from states where support is not nearly as strong as it is in other places, and they don't want to lose their jobs next year by making a stand on this issue right now, particularly on the more controversial parts. >> and they have to listen to the voters who put them in office as well. >> we'll see how it goes. >> tom foreman, thanks so much. >>> to the white house now w
